Westerbeke Ranch offers shared accommodations in charming and comfortably furnished redwood cabins. Delightful paths lead to the cabins, which are nestled in the gardens above the pool area. Each cabin has its own bathroom and private entrance, and is appointed in a fashion reminiscent of California’s Spanish colonial past. Then there are the amenities available at Westerbeke – a swimming pool, hot tub, massage, stunning hiking trails, plenty of sun lit and shaded benches to relax on, and of course some of the most delicious authentic homemade cuisine available in the Bay Area, made with the best locally sourced ingredients. Also not to be missed is Westerbeke’s selection of Sonoma wines.
Be certain to bring a headlamp or flashlight to walk around the property after sundown, as well low-heeled, flat rubber soled shoes for uneven surfaces.
There is also internet in the common areas, but none in the bedrooms.
The main workshop meeting room is air conditioned. The cabins do have ceiling fans, but no air conditioning units.

And the best part about the Art Kit is that it’s yours to keep once the retreat concludes! Feel free to bring any additional supplies of your choice.
